The Conan Quilt by Allison Chambers, 2014

I've been a fan of Conan O'Brien and his late night comedy since I was a teenager and recently while watching his show I noticed a lot of his fans were making artwork using his likeness and presenting it to him on his show. That's when the idea to make The Conan Quilt hit me! I took his logo and enlarged it using my computer and overlayed a grid so that I could create his pathcwork orange hair. I sewed the patchwork pieces together, cut out the outline of the hair and then appliqued it to the face and background pieces. The back of the quilt includes the words "TEAM COCO," which is the name of Conan's online fan group. After Quiltcon I hope to make a trip to California to give it to him in person.
